The Vajrakilaya Practices of the Rigpa Sangha

Vajrakilaya from the thangka of Tendrel Nyesel

This was written by Dudjom Rinpoche as a short daily practice related to the terma cycle of Pudri Rekpung, The Razor That Destroys at a Touch.

The “Wisdom Mind Practice of ‘One Phurba’” is a terma discovered and deciphered by Tertön Sogyal in the monastery of Kathok Dorjé Den. It was written in the hand of the great Dzogchen master Vairotsana.

This short sadhana was composed by Jamyang Khyentse, at Sogyal Rinpoche’s request, while travelling on horseback from Kham (East Tibet) to Lhasa.
